  1. Post-Wash Tuesday...getting ready for race weekend.....
  2. Great job! Did you cut out/remove the arch liners to get the aero benefit?
  3. @GFWilliams-- George, looking good. Jim makes great stuff.... too bad he hates us Yanks. I'd love to buy his headers/down-pipe/S-pipe setup but alas, it will never happen.
  4. Had some fun over the past weekend and performed my own "shoot-out" between my 2008 2-Eleven and the 2015 V6CupR @ Spring Mountain. Interestingly, set virtually the same lap times in both on my way to a new personal best. Love both my "Loti" .... I would be remiss by not mentioning that my 211 has been modified quite a bit and has better power-to-weight numbers than the V6 (which is stock, except for some weight reduction). However, HOT ambient temps really handicap the V6 much more so than the 211, as the V6 is non-intercooled. My "shoot-out" was done with ambient temps at ~88-90*F (~32*
  5. Latest photo with front splitter mod.....
  6. @alias23--Of course Imran, I knew you'd spot it. They don't call you "eagle eye" for nothing. The angle at which the photo was taken doesn't reveal the actual spacing at the back. I attempted to somewhat copy the design of this element on the Jubu car. I could space out the rear a bit more -- not sure it will really do anything that I will feel on track or see in the data, but I was bored so why not have a go with the 3d printer. Isn't there a Lotus Exige model that has a factory splitter with end fences?
  7. I think rear toe-out would be great..... IF ...... I wanted to turn my CupR into a drift car and even then, it could still be a terrifying ride, as Dave opined.
  8. Then I stand corrected Dave. Most photos of the 380 that I saw only had "curved" stripes on the access panel.....
  9. I agree, roof stripes would only look right if access panel stripes went straight back. I went for the 380 look....
  10. As a follow-up....soliciting opinions (I know ... "opinions are like 'arseholes'... everyone has one" )...... stripe or no stripe on access panel? All opinions welcome.
  11. Yes I YouTube channel is listed with my signature....but I will make it easy ....
  12. Gary, I was in a hurry to fit mine, so I didn't go the polish or re-finish route to eliminate the "red". I just did a self-wrap over the red.
  13. No Eldon, it's all the "luxury" car and interior goodies (you know.... air conditioned and massaging seats, navigation w/ deluxe sound system, cruise control etc) and an extra 130 HP.
  14. Nicolas, it's definitely a glitch....hope it's a sensor and not the oiling system. Do you know if that car is running a sequential vs the Jubu dual-clutch setup? It could be my audio perception, but it sounded like the car was running straight-cut gears??
  15. Just watched the video....did anyone else notice the OIL alarm, presumably oil pressure. It must have come on at least 10 times during that lap, could be an oil surge issue or perhaps the threshold for the alarm is set too low?? If interested, your can catch the OIL alarm at 31, 35, 49, 1:06, 1:16; 1:27 (and more times) during the video. Curious to see, as I believe that car is running a dry sump oiling system.
  16. Just imagine what the driver could have done with some stickier tires.
  18. I can't let Eldon take over my post and put up a video of his car w/o there being one of my car. A fun config @ Spring Mountain Motorsport Ranch -- the "Clark A" -- we haven't run it for a while.....I'm faster now after being "tutored" by Mr Eldon.
  19. @EldonZ ---- My Hero! Did we ever figure out what that white car you were chasing starting @ about 3:23 in the video....Panoz or Ginetta G55?
  20. Got all the parts and just waiting to get into my "race shop" under the supervision of my designated crew chief @EldonZ Eldon has already done the upgrade to his CupR and served as the "pioneer" for this project -- he loves science projects. I'm sure he can chime in on how he likes the changes. His car has certainly achieved "low-rider" status. I believe he is running ride heights of ... 105mm front and 115mm rear. Some photos of Eldon's car, as he is very shy.
  21. My attempt at being @GFWilliams...... ....not even close.....
  22. Time for a few photos post track run and clean-up showing Imran's side sills and side [email protected] Unfortunately, I don't have the George's photographic [email protected]
  23. @Hangar111 -- Thanks for your input Dave. Yes, while the CupR Y-pipe did not touch the stock pan, it was close....might even have picked up a couple of mm's of clearance with the Moroso -- still very close. Based upon a photo (below) I've seen of the KT track 63mm Y-downpipe and Moroso pan, looks like it will fit OK...fingers crossed. Regarding the Lotus recommended servicing of the stock baffled sump's rubber "flaps" ..... never heard of such a thing until reading the CupR Supplementary Manual. That servicing requirement provided me with additional
